Golf Cage Nets and Custom Golf Netting Designs from Gourock.com

Golf Cage Nets and Custom Golf Netting Designs from Gourock.com

At Gourock.com we have always been a source for premium golf cage netting and golf driving nets that are constructed to customized designs and sizes.  As the colder and wetter seasons roll in for a lot of golfers, having an indoor golf hitting net is an invaluable benefit to keeping their swing and training on track.  We supply customized golf netting that is built according to most any particular dimensions or shape features required to functionally fit within an intended golf hitting area.  Over the last couple decades we have shipped out golf nets and golf cage netting that is produced to an extremely wide variety of different custom sizes, with many unique features and personalized requests.  Some examples include golf nets that have very specific dimensional requirements, tapers or angled shape needs, removable impact panels and divider nets, doors or entrance area characteristics, and specific bordering or edge-finishing requests.

Since golf cage nets and golf hitting nets are usually installed and hung within various different types of frames, hooks, or suspension cables there are many times that a more specifically constructed netting design is very preferred in order for the final project to not only function perfectly - but also to have a really professional appearance and aesthetic.  Fortunately by using Gourock.com for you golf netting supply, you get access to the highest quality netting materials and expert craftsmanship - allowing you to dependably accomplish both goals.  We use 100% Made in USA DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting, along with 5/16" Dacron® rope bordering materials - and all netting designs are completely hand-crafted per invoice with fast turnaround times.  

Golf impact netting is a 3/4" mesh size, and at Gourock we offer two different twine thicknesses for golf ball uses.  The lighter weight #15 X 3/4" knotted nylon is a 144 lb. tensile rating twine, with a 1.8mm twine thickness.  This is a great selection for the golf ball containment areas of a golf driving space, such as side-walls, ceilings, and for areas that need to retain errant balls and shots.  Secondly, there is the thicker #21 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting, which is a 241 lb. tensile rating twine with a 2.0mm twine thickness.  This mesh selection is used for the direct driving nets (being driven-into on purpose) such as the back walls or impact panels of a golf cage, or other zones that golfers are specifically driving into as the primary hitting area at a close range.  Many times what we see is a customer preference for using the #15 X 3/4" nylon netting for the surrounding containment areas of the golf cage, and then using the heavier #21 X 3/4" nylon netting for the back direct-impact wall.  Or conversely, the entire cage netting and primary impact panel net are often made exclusively from the heavier #21 twine netting, which is a very popular option for commercial golf installations, pro shops, high UV/exposure installations, organizational golf setups, and residential projects that prefer the thicker netting all around.

Regarding availability, Gourock.com has been a primary specialist in direct e-commerce ordering for nearly 20 years - allowing you direct access to custom sized golf cage nets right through our Online Custom Golf Cage Calculator.  You can order any dimensions at all, and we have them processed, produced, and shipped to your location within just a couple of weeks on average.  In addition, you can always contact us directly and provide us with diagrams, sketches, or additional details on your golf cage netting project - and we'll get a personalized quotation prepared and emailed back your way promptly.

Here are a couple of examples from the last few weeks that show some unique custom golf cage nets that we have shipped out to our customers.  As you can see, there are unique sizes and shape features incorporated into each of these golf nets - which were required to match up with specific framing and installation areas.  Each of these nets was personally quoted by request, and were fabricated and shipped out in one business week of the order.  They both incorporate the #15 X 3/4" and the #21 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting options, and have tapered/angled shape designs along with secondary double-layers of impact netting.  These were both intended for indoor installations for full-time use throughout the year - making them a fantastic training option for golf swing practice all winter long.

Basketball Court Netting and Gymnasium Nets for Basketball Containment

Basketball Court Netting and Gymnasium Nets for Basketball Containment

Netting for basketball containment purposes is a very popular product offering that we have available at Gourock.com, and the nets that we supply for basketball purposes greatly enhance the functionality and effectiveness of gymnasium training areas.  Many of our netting customers are facilities, organizations, schools, and municipal establishments that require different areas of their basketball court and gymnasium locations to be segmented into different practice areas - or to properly contain errant basketballs from rolling/bouncing out of the playing space.  Having an effective barrier within a basketball court or gymnasium area helps to make practice more efficient, and also enhances the safety of bystanders and athletes that are training in separate areas of the space.  The netting options and custom net products available from Gourock.com are your perfect solution for basketball containment purposes, and we have them available to be supplied according to any custom dimensions and sizing required for your project.

Gourock specializes in the supply of 100% Made in USA nylon netting, built from the highest quality DuPont type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon twine - and we have a wide variety of different mesh sizes and twine thicknesses to consider using.  Basketball nets are often preferred to be produced in popular mesh sizes of 4", 2" and 1-3/4" - all of which we have readily available to prepare to any sizing you particularly need.  The most popular basketball netting option that we ship out is the 4" mesh size, which is great for larger-objects such as basketball, soccer, volleyball, football, dodgeball, and other similar activities.  For our customers that want to have a bit more of a multipurpose training space that also incorporate some sports like tennis, baseball, roller hockey, or other smaller diameter balls/objects, a really great option to use is the 1-3/4" mesh size netting.  Another reason why a 1-3/4" or 2" mesh size netting may be preferred for use in a gymnasium or basketball court area is to prevent athlete or bystander hands/feet/arms from being able to poke-through the mesh opening of the netting.

A great benefit to using Gourock.com for your netting supply is not only the ability to have nets custom built to size, but also the fact that you can have many different features and options integrated into the netting design as well.  We supply customers and clients from every aspect of the basketball netting industry, ranging from professional training facilities, to universities and scholastic installations, to private residential homeowners.  For a good reference on some of the very high-end basketball barrier nets that we routinely have produced and shipped out, here is a great example of a nationally recognized basketball training organization that uses Gourock netting for their arena and basketball court installations.

Our client builds out professional basketball training and shooting facilities within various different arenas throughout the country, and they require very high strength and dependable barrier nets that have very specific sizing and customized feature needs.  For many years Gourock.com has shipped out custom nylon netting panels that are fabricated from the #36 X 1-3/4" square mesh DuPont knotted nylon netting.  This is a high-strength twine thickness that has maximum abrasion resistance, resulting in a fantastic commercially-oriented safety netting for professional basketball facilities.

All around the perimeter of each netting panel is a 1-1/2" webbing-bordered edge, with grommets stamped at 12" intervals.  This type of bordering has a very finished-off appearance, and also allows for many different attachment points that can be well utilized during the installation and hanging of the nets.  And finally, because each different basketball hoop and shooting area needs to be easily accessed by players and coaches, there are various nets that have rope-bordered entrance doors that are specifically placed at different intervals to correspond with the layout of the court design and shooting/training zones.

Gourock.com can assist and supply you with basketball barrier nets and containment netting, and we invite you to contact us with your inquiries or requests.  We can provide you with some advice or quotations for your specific project or netting needs, and we also have immediate online ordering of custom nets directly through our Online Custom Netting Calculator.  We look forward to being your source for basketball barrier nets and gymnasium containment netting!
